The decision of where to attend high school is an important one. And for the students who were accepted at Forman School for the 2017-’18 year, Revisit Day was the perfect opportunity to envision themselves as members of the community. Through gray skies and light drizzle all day, it felt like the sun was shining for the new Lions, who were beaming with excitement about their new school.
But with all of the school options out there, why did they choose Forman? Four incoming students spoke with us about their decision to enroll at Forman. Read what they had to say about Revisit Day and what they are looking forward to in the fall below.
